KID, 04 May 2010well, true, maybe it's not so simple as a Firmware upgrade to switch from Symbian^3 to Symbian... moreKID - so do I - just don't want to be disappointed by getting an overwhelming phone with what might be an underwhelming OS (compared to other OS) - so I'll wait until Nokia release it with S^4 (I am sure they will be testing S^4 with this phone).
also, I read somewhere that this phone will also support threaded sms view out of the box, nice!!
bububaba, 04 May 2010What's Nokia's problem? They need to increase the processor speed of their phones. SE is obvio... moreWhy would they have to do that for symbian3 already is marked as a low consumption OS just like S60 why do you think it doesn't need much to run
But just need a little more to run faster
434 is ok since the n97/97mini,5800,5530,5233/5230 all run at that same speed so inscreasing the clockspeed
Adding more ram
Making the screen amoled
Have an aluminum unibody
And tweeking the OS to optimum performance
Will make the phone so much better which it has
bububaba, 04 May 2010What's Nokia's problem? They need to increase the processor speed of their phones. SE is obvio... morewell, I think 680 is enough power, it has a graphic accelerator too. And also, maybe nokia will give this phone an extra power along with a firmware upgrade, just like my 5800.
I really cant wait to buy this phone!! but the price are usually going up in my country, like when N900 come up here, it's priced around US$ 710
Kcd, 04 May 2010Going from Symbian^3 to Symbian^4 is not like a simple firmware upgrade - it's a whole new OS.... morewell, true, maybe it's not so simple as a Firmware upgrade to switch from Symbian^3 to Symbian^4, but I still hope for the best
KID, 04 May 2010I think maybe that nokia will enable N8 to be upgraded from symbian^3 to Symbian^4, if not, th... moreI wish people wouldn't speculate about upgrading the phone from S^3 to S^4 - it's not been mentioned anywhere on the Symbian or Nokia site. If you want this phone with S^4 then wait - if Nokia has any sense they will release it early next year with S^4.
cristid, 04 May 2010Nokia really needs to upgrade its displays, this is a low rezolution comaperd with other brand... morewell, I think the 360x640 is fine already, since this is a mid class phone I think, and the high end phone will be using meego as their OS
true, it's not much if you compared it to other phone like HTC HD2, or Omnia HD, but I think that's not a problem, look at Iphone, it has a lower res than N8, but still a great phone isnt it??
What's Nokia's problem? They need to increase the processor speed of their phones. SE is obviously doing that right now.
KID, 04 May 2010I think maybe that nokia will enable N8 to be upgraded from symbian^3 to Symbian^4, if not, th... moreYou might be able to upgrade from symbian^3 to ^4 since it has 512mb ROM which is the first time ever mentioned about from nokia
So i guess it can get a custom rom soon enough
Finally a nokia phone that actually is worth buying. It has everything a gadget lover could ask for. Bluetooth 4 would be an excellent choice if it facilitates that but the most important thing is, its not a phone, its an art and a passionate way to say no to iPhone. Regards.
Anonymous, 04 May 2010no thats wrong the loudspeaker on the back i get that from the user manual its here http... moreSomething is not right on that phone.........no microUSB charger wtf nokia or it's a mistake
Nokia N8 is my dream come true!!! This is the Best By far... Lets see the Meego device and the successor to N97... Because following Nokia's succession rule this device based on name and Specification should be the successor to N86 8MP :)
Nokia really needs to upgrade its displays, this is a low rezolution comaperd with other brands. If the battery is not accesible without a screwdriver is really bad, if the phone hangs and the only way to restart is to take out the battery is to use a screwdriver.
Anonymous, 04 May 2010i am having this phone for 2 years.
But since my phone is getting older, it also function slo... more:)) Nobody believes you :)) You can't have THIS phone for 2 years because nokia didn't launched it.
When will it appears I will go to buy it :X:X IT'S THE GREAT PHONE I EVER SEEN! The specs are stunnishing and the design is more than that!
Anonymous, 04 May 2010of course it will be upgradeableGoing from Symbian^3 to Symbian^4 is not like a simple firmware upgrade - it's a whole new OS. Phones are not like computers (unfortunately) where you can install the latest and greatest OS. But if apps written for S^4 are compatible with S^3 that's a great plus. But some might want to sit on the fence and see if Nokia release this phone with S^4 early next year.
i dont know how to put this, coz this is absurd, just check this out guys
and i assure that what u'll see will blow up ur mind, i was plain dumb after a saw this one........... i mean like wtf omg at the same time..........
